This summer, you can uncover Claude Monet's genius through the very muses that inspired his work. From now until Oct. 21, 2012, the New York Botanical Garden pays homage to the artist in a special exhibit that centers on the greenery he loved to paint. Monet's Garden features several paintings by the artist, one of which has never been publicly displayed in the United States before, and a selection of his photographs and records, including bills of sale. Tours, concerts, film screenings, poetry readings, and family activities are offered, each unveiling a different aspect of the renowned painter's work. Tickets can be purchased at NYBG.org.
